Bridal Shower Hostess gifts

 

Remember my friend who just got engaged?

Well, she is getting married in less than a month! This week we completed a big project.  Between the 3 showers she is having, there are 22 hostesses. That is a lot of hostess gifts.  She didn’t want to spend a ton of money, but still wanted them to be personal. We settled on making monogrammed hand towels for each hostess and I think they turned out nice!

We had a sort of assembly line going and in all it only took us about 4 hours to finish all 22 of them. The bride-to-be cut out all the letters, our other friend was in charge of ironing them on, and I zig-zag stitched around them with a contrasting thread color and sewed on the rick rack with a simple straight stitch.

What made this project even simpler was that we purchased the hand towels with a linen border already in place. We just added the rick rack and monogram! We bought the towels here. Bridal shower hostess gifts 002

She will package these with a little bar of soap that goes with the theme of her wedding.  Won’t they make great gifts? It was a little extra work, but in the long run it was worth it and I think the hostesses will appreciate the extra effort.
